USC landed a commitment earlier this week from one of the top offensive linemen in Tennessee in Maxwell Iyama and the Gamecocks continues to work on another, Jerome Carvin of Cordova. Carvin made his first visit to USC last weekend for the spring game and was joined by his mother on the visit.
“The visit was great, I enjoyed my time down there,” Carvin said. “I was talking with Coach Wolford, Coach Bentley and Coach Muschamp and they were saying I am a top priority for them. Coach Wolford and Coach Bentley are coming down to Memphis to watch me this spring. They like how I am relentless in finishing my blocks, the way I move for now big I am and that I have good feet. And I’m a pretty good pass blocker.”
Carvin is being recruited as a guard.
The trip to USC was the latest in a full itinerary of campus visits for Carvin who also has been to Alabama, Tennessee, Memphis, Kentucky, Louisville, Missouri, Mississippi State and Ole Miss. He will visit Georgia on the 7th and Auburn on the 8th. And he plans a return trip to Alabama and one to Tennessee.
Carvin said he will soon release a top seven and then he will narrow his list to five for his official visits. It is possible he will graduate early.
Carvin’s cousin Damien Jacobs played for Muschamp at Florida.
